Great. But this is a forum for opinions - not a fan site or appreciation thread.

but your opinion is mis-guided and offensive and you have made far too many posts and should get out more.

in my opinion.

Firstly - I would like you to state the opinions of mine that you find offensive and/or misguided. Misguided because they disagree with yours? & I have said nothing offensive about Halliwell - IMHO she is totally talentless - that is an opinion - and not an offensive one.

Secondly, telling me I have made far too many posts & should get out more: You could well be right - but personal attacks on other posters are against forum T&C's.

I've answered you - I was referring to the women of a similar age to Geri who seem to dislike her for the simple reason that "that wasn't them"!

Some people just don't like Geri or her music, and that's fine!

I've explained above why I criticize Gary Barlow.



Ok Kenny, Michelle Pfeiffer is over a decade older than me. She is jaw droppingly beautiful, a brilliant actress and is beyond wealthy.

I love the woman.

Amazing - we are being judged by people who claim that judging makes you jealous! Kenny, you should have said, love. I had no idea that you were bitter and jealous of me. I'm flattered, really.

Geri has nothing that I am jealous of.

You're jealous because you haven't got his money - just like we're all jealous because we haven't got hers...

You make a helluva lot of assumptions about her critics so I'm going to make the same about you. Your argument is not logical. You've given reasons why you dislike Barlow - just as we;ve given reasons for disliking Halliwell. I personally think she's talentless, dull, needy and a very lonely woman - that's my perogative - doesn't make me jealous. It's a very childish argument with no basis in reality.

As for record sales - Mr Blobby is one of the best selling single UK artists of all time.

I'm not jealous of Gary Barlow's money - Whether you believe that or not I literally couldn't give a badger's fart!

I have money of my own and lead a perfectly privileged live -for which I am grateful every single day.

Geri, in your opinion, may be talentless, dull, needy and lonely but at heart she is a good person.

Gary Barlow, In my experience, the encounters I have heard from others and my own 'Television viewer opinion', is not a terribly nice person.

Find me one high profile interview in which Geri has slated anyone who has publicly mocked her...

She may be an irritant to you, for whatever reason, but she has never felt the need to publicly mock any of the other Spice Girls, Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Destiny's Child, Britney, Girls Aloud etc etc who may have done the same to her.

And trust me, there is PLENTY that she could have said about a lot of them!...

That's just not her style.

"What other people think of you is none of your business".

"Stay classy".



As for the latter part of the post - record sales for 'Mr. Blobby' whatever that is, really don't bear any relevance within this discussion.

The facts are:

A popular UK boy band of the 1990's (Take That) sold 40 million records.
A popular Global girl group of the 1990's (The Spice Girls) sold 80 million records.
De Facto leader of said boy band (Gary) sold 5 million records as a solo act.
De Facto leader of said girl group (Geri) sold 12 million records as a solo act.

Whatever, I'm done!

Get outta the kitchen and quit your bitchin gurrl!

So do I - so your absurd assumptions about people who criticise Geri hold no credence whatsoever. Only other super fans of this woman would hold such aggressive views and state them so boldly with no evidence whatsoever.

The fact of the matter is - you can dish it out - but you can't take it. Now that your incredibly tenuous insistence that anyone who criticises Geri lives in a terraced house has been blown out of the water - all you have left is aggressive soundbites and silly quotes. Shame - but there we go.

I am perfectly entitled to my opinions on Halliwell - just as you are entitled to yours on Barlow - but don't be so childish as to assume the jealousy line - it just doesn't hold any water. My opinion is based on what I have seen of her in the media - just as yours is of Barlow.

Oh, and for the record - I'm not a fan of Barlow - I find him quite tedious on XFactor. However, he is a fantastically successful songwriter. Again, his songs are not to my taste - but it cannot be denied that he is one of the best songwriting talents in the country. What's Geri's contribution to songwriting? 'Zigazigah' - genius

Geri wrote Stop, a lot of the lyrics for Too Much, she wrote most of 2 become 1 with producers Stannard and Rowe about her relationship with Matt (Rowe)..

She is a brilliant pop lyricist in my opinion.

"Love is blind/ as far as the eye can see/ deep and meaningless words to me....What part of 'no' don't you understand? I want a man not a boy who thinks he can."

"I like chocolate and controversy/ he likes Friday's and bad company... Just a bad case of Opposite Sex/ have to look to the stars/ all we need is a little respect/ because men are from Venus/ and girls are from mars! Bag it up/ don't drop the baby/ boot him out/ no buts or or maybes/ wind him up/ and make him crazy/ woah woah woah woah Lady!"

"Lonely hearts are welcome here/ take my hand let's disappear/ serenity is almost here oh God... Gimme some gimme some gasoline/ tell me what you want/ know what I mean and scream if you wanna go faster baby/ scream if you wanna go faster. Gimme some gimme some sweet F.A/ have a nice day as Americans say and scream if you wanna go faster baby/ scream if you wanna go faster"

And of course her pièce de résistance:

"You're a DJ, I'm a song, take me out and turn me on."

I like the love you have got going on for the lyrics and the meaning of the song/s I was going to be mean but i thought differently,if its any music and it has made an impact on you and you respect/enjoy it, stuff anyone else! The cynical doors fan in me is cynical.

I think alot of the jibes Gary Barlow has been making against Geri on X Factor & Jonathan Ross too make him come across as quite nasty.

Geri thinks so too. She's never been one to do the same kind of thing.

There's banter with a cheeky wink "maybe he's just intimidated by me because I've sold more records? " But she's never nasty about anyone else in the industry in interviews like this.

He can be quite a bitter and nasty old fart sometimes - and he never had the balls to say any of these jibes to her face!

Okay so, unlike some of the other 'Girls, Mel will not be interviewed with her mother as part of the documentary this Christmas Eve...

BUT she does love her family very very much.
